Hellwig 2011, TieWV 121; Hellwig 1980, no. 101. Table with ivory edging and double purfling; back (arched) is 13 pieces of palisander separated by thin ivory strips, ribs 8-piece, with ivory edging. Head and pegs are ivory; pegbox with open-carved back, neck, fingerboard (open-carved from neck foot to lower end), carved neck heel, and tailpiece (in the form of two intertwined snakes) veneered with ivory; hookbar of 3 ivory + 2 ebony strips. Dimensions 68.0. 30.5/22.2/38.0, 13.2, -. (Baines 1966, p. 18: “Back of rosewood with ivory fillets. Ivory neck, head and fittings including tailpiece in the form of a cornucopia.”) Shown in Brussels exhibition catalogues, 1972 and 1974, both ed. by von de Maeyer. Hellwig 2011 adds: handwritten on underside of fingerboard: “réparé par Jacques Bernard ... / le 15-12-1958 / Liege.” 2-piece table; ouer strips of ribs wider than others; facial features of head only distantly related to wooden ones from same period, so probably by a different carver. Back widths 30.3/22.4/37.9 (upper front width “20.5,” surely a typo for 30.5). Very similar tailpiece on TieWV 89 (1696).
